SBIR/STTR Programs

The National Small Business Innovative Research Program (SBIR) was created in 1982 to strengthen the role of small firms in federally supported R&D programs. SBIR is now a mature, proven program that has grown from an initial federal investment of $400,000 to a level of $1.5 Billion a year

SBIR funds come in the form of either a contract or a grant. There are two levels of funding: Phase 1 which is up to $100,000 and six months and Phase 2 which is up to $750,000 and two years. At present, there are ten Federal Agencies participating in the SBIR program.  For links to Federal Agencies and the schedules of solicitations posted go to:
